This is great place period. The place is run by a young man who walks around assisting his staff in an apron and swim trunks. The food, service and ambiance with live music is spectacular. Both indoor and outdoor seating in a great part of this small town. A view of the kitchen, street and sky all from inside. Simply... More

This restaurant is a fun place to visit, lively and full of people. There are two areas - one with AC and one without. Our server was excellent. My wife and I share the paella. It takes 50 minutes to order. we started with a shrimp appetizer that was average. The paella was good but not great.

A nice restaurant with a good ambiance and live music. But the food is mediocre. The plaza in front of the restaurant is highly lively and so beautiful. You need to make reservations.

Besides this being a place that offers great food, it also offers a great ambiance because of the live music, beautiful people, and cool outside seating!

Good location to see performances, and have dinner outside with the breeze. Pizza is decent (thin crust).

Juan del Mar is located in a very nice Plaza in Cartagena. The food is mainly seafood, and is very good!!! You will find different type of sea food and they are prepared in different ways. If you want a nice location, make a reservation in advance
